After a quick breakfast at McD, not because it's great but because it's cheap and fast, we were on the road by 8:25. The temperature was already 34*.
We traveled through Virginia until 2:15, it's a big state. According to the AAA Trip Tick, we were on a scenic route and I would have to agree. I like VA, it's rolling countryside with mountain ranges on both sides. The Skyline Drive through Shenandoah National Park is on one side and the George Washington National Forest is on the other.
Apparently it's dairy country; we saw a lot of cows and a few horses.
VA is home to James Madison University.

|Looks like fun, if you don't throw up|
|Charlotte, NC hiding behind the EZPass...oops|

Titan's a great traveler but once we get to the motel, he's all wound up and bored silly after sleeping all day. We brought a few toys with treats and did some Nose Work tonight, still not really enough to wear him out. I'm glad it's only two nights on the road!
Saw lots of interesting names again today, mostly in VA. For example...Pugh's Run, Timberville, Rockbridge Baths, Mint Spring and Hanging Rock to name a few. There was Steeles Tavern where you might be able to get Stuarts Draft. How does one ever get out of Endless Caverns? Today's favorites...Fancy Gap and Bees Creek.
It was another good, uneventful day with the exception of seeing an 18-wheeler blow an inside tire as we were passing by. Lots of pieces of rubber tire flying around but luckily they were small and didn't cause us any problems.
Thanks for stopping by...
